  • Innate customer obsession and deep experience working with UX research on foundational insights as well as concept evaluation and iteration
  • Demonstrated skills for collaborating closely with other designers, researchers, product managers, data scientists and engineers in order to achieve better design outcomes

  • Familiarity with designing for mature products — incrementally, against visions, and through step-change improvements
  • Demonstrated ability to launch and iterate on products and features, with an eye towards business and customer impact
  • Fluency with describing impact in quantitative/business metrics as well as qualitative methods.
  • Ownership mindset with a bias towards action, helping to drive teams and projects forward.

Additional Perks + Benefits

In order to be successful in our Virtual First environment we needed to make changes that would allow employees to have more control over both where and how they work. Therefore, we embrace “non-linear workdays” with defined core collaboration hours that overlap across time zones. Beyond that, we encourage employees to design their own schedules to balance collaboration with needs for individual focus. We’ve also moved from “all day syncs” to an “async by default” culture, reserving meetings for discussion, debate, and decision-making, and handling all other work in our deep focus hours.
